Sleeping Trees Treelogy (Sleeping Trees)

By | Published on Friday 8 August 2014

Three guys, three shows and about a dozen characters each; Sleeping Trees undoubtedly have their hands full this festival! The trio are doing three productions, each an interpretation of a different fictional story. I attended ‘The Odyssey’, an energetic show that strays from the original tale but is certainly entertaining. The actors are talented, engaging, and hilarious, portraying everything from a six-eyed monster to a talking table. Their performances are intense, physically and vocally, and the transitions and movements impressively choreographed. I would just have liked to see some semblance of a set or some lighting effects, as this would have contributed immensely to the aesthetic aspect of the show. Nevertheless, Sleeping Trees are a company to look out for this festival.

Pleasance Courtyard until 25 Aug.
